AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) – Maine officials have chosen three companies to provide non-emergency rides to patients in the Medicaid program.
The Department of Health and Human Services said Thursday that Logisticare and Penquis Community Action Program were among the companies selected to provide services in six of the state’s eight regions.
Those companies currently provide services in other areas of Maine.
The state also picked Waldo Community Action Program.
Maine sought new bids after it chose not to renew Connecticut-based Coordinated Transportation Solutions contracts. The company was criticized after MaineCare patients complained of missed and delayed rides.
The state says the company submitted new bids for all six regions, but wasn’t chosen.
Companies that weren’t selected will have a chance to appeal before the state enters into final contract negotiations.
